Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter – New images

Posted by LiveFor on March 24, 2009


MTV Splashpage had these cool looking images from the forthcoming Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter DVD. There will be a super deluxe directer’s cut version of Watchmen with this animated segment spliced in.
“Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter” — features the vocal talents of “300” star Gerard Butler — ships out tomorrow on DVD and Blu-ray, and includes the Minutemen pseudo-doc, “Under the Hood,” starring the cast from the film reprising their roles as the original do-gooders gone horribly bad. Along with the headlining movies, the 2-disc set also includes a first-look at “Green Lantern: First Flight,” and bonus featurettes “Story Within a Story: The Books of the Watchmen” which explores the comic-within-a-comic of “Watchmen,” “The Why of the Watchmen” by Zack Snyder, and “The Two Bernies” showing a scene from “Watchmen” not seen in theaters (the latter two only available on the Blu-ray edition of the set).

Dave Gibbons has finished his Watchmen Commentary

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2009

Rich Johnston over at Lying in the Gutters had this little piece of info regarding the Watchmen DVD.

Dave Gibbons confirmed to a packed audience at a Borders bookstore this week that he has already completed his DVD commentary for the mega-directors-cut of “Watchmen” that includes the “Black Freighter” story integrated into the main film. Maybe we can expect the finished product sooner rather than later?

Watchmen Cocktails – I said Blue Bols!!

Posted by LiveFor on March 9, 2009

Still thirsty for more Watchmen related stuff? Groaning at the dreadful punnage?

Well fret no more as the good people over at Isotope Comics have come up with some Watchmen inspired cocktails. Here are a couple of them (remember kids no drinking alcohol until your reach the recommended age for your country, state, or Mega City Block).

Full Frontal Manhattan

Those who have already seen the movie or read the book will want to start their boozing off with this tribute to Dr. Manhattan’s… (ahem)… full-frontal blueness!

2 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters

Shaken and served up. The Isotope staff prefers this cocktail to be served with a little backlighting for best blue glow effect.

The Comedian

Here’s a great follow-up to that blue-hued cosmic adventure… a drink of pure nihilism! But be warned, this one is sure to rough you up a bit, just like the drink’s namesake, The Comedian.

2 oz Yukon Jack Canadian Whiskey
Dr. Pepper

Fill a tall glass with ice and feel free to go heavy on the Yukon Jack. Top off with as little Dr. Pepper as you dare. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a drop of blood in honor of that Watchmen smileyface button you’ve been bootlegging.

Black Freighter

Because it wouldn’t be complete without a little pirate adventure!

2 oz Gosling’s Black Seal Dark Rum
3/4 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz Hiram Walker Creme De Cacao Dark

Combine over ice and stir. Too many of these, and your night might end up on the cutting room floor of your memory just like the Black Freighter scenes that were cut from the movie. Hope it doesn’t get its own DVD!

Head on over to Isotope to check out the rest. They are also after some more cocktail recipes for Rorschach and Nite Owl.

Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter Preview

Posted by LiveFor on February 28, 2009

This cool little featurette shows some footage from Tales of the Black Freighter along with the voice of Gerard Butler. That’s the comic book story that is intertwined with the goings on in Watchmen. It is being released separately on DVD, Blu-Ray, and iTunes on March 24th. However, Zack Snyder has said their will be a complete Watchmen Directors Cut that will have the Black Freighter tale in the mix.

Watchmen – News on the Director’s Cut and Black Freighter Edition on DVD

Posted by LiveFor on February 19, 2009

Film School Rejects had this news about Zack Snyder’s plans for a director’s cut DVD of Watchmen and how he will also release a version with Tales of the Black Freighter cut into it.
Summer/July: Director’s Cut. This cut will feature “99% of what we shot,” footage which Zack Snyder said he liked. The run time on this edition will be just over 3 hours long, compared to the 2:35ish run time of the theatrical version. It will be more violent, more sexy, and have more naked Dr. Manhattan. Also included will be entire scenes excised from the movie for time.

Fall/Last Quarter: The Black Freighter Edition. This title may not be the final title, but it is how Snyder identified it. He told us that they shot all the Ins and Outs of The Black Freighter pieces from the comic book, which for those of you who haven’t read it, mostly revolve around a boy and newsstand salesman. You can see these characters in the film, but they don’t have an impact on the story. The big news is that The Black Freighter, the animated movie, will be cut into the film. The animated film is said to be 22minutes long which, with the In and Out shots, will bump the presentation to about 3hours and 25minutes. Snyder referred to this release as the “fetishistic and kind of crazy” release, as it is so complete.

All sounds pretty good for fans of Watchmen. Just got to wait until 6th March now to see it on the big screen. By the way that’s the French Watchmen poster that has just been released.

Out of interest those of you who are not comic fans or have never read Watchmen are you excited about this film or do you feel it looks like a pile of slow-mo rubbish?
